We are happy to be able to call ourselves one of the only optical shops in West Michigan lucky enough to carry the COSTA sunglass and RX collection. For those that may not be familiar with the brand, COSTA builds some of the best sunglasses on the planet for those who live to be on or by the water. Born on the water and still inspired by it, COSTA sets out to protect it, and inspire others to do the same.
LENS TECHNOLOGY: Costa 580® Lenses: Beyond Polarized
Costa 580 lenses were designed by in-house light spectrum experts to enhance colors because standard sunglass lenses fell short. The lens’ multi-patented technology manages light by:
Absorbing Harmful High-Energy Blue Light (HEV)
Cuts haze and blur for greater clarity
In addition to 100% protection from UV light, 580 technology also absorbs HEV light known to cause macular degeneration, pterygium, cataracts and other eye diseases
Enhancing Reds, Greens, and Blues
Blocking harsh yellow light at 580 nm on the visible light spectrum boosts the amounts of red, greens and blues naturally, enhancing colors and contrast
Filtering Out Harsh Yellow
For enhanced color, sharper contrast and higher definition
After almost 35 years, and countless adventures, COSTA’S mission has never wavered: to create the best sunglasses on the planet for life's great adventures. The patented technology like that found only in Costa lenses and frames are proof that they’re succeeding.
